Some word of Salvatore Matarazzo about:
“People in general, but especially photographers, tend to take themselves seriously and irony is everyday less and less. If it is then approached to portrait photography, open the sky… and also we will never dream of asking: “Let me come well” to a designer or a caricaturist. We ask a photographer, on the other hand, because when you are portrayed in a photograph you always expect to see a real image of yourself, even if we are aware that both the choices used by the author and the technique make it almost impossible to create a faithful image, not to mention that the reflected image (on mirroring surfaces) that we know of ourselves, for a number of reasons related to Visual Perception and Gestalt, is not what others see. In fact, in a photo we can like each other, but inside us a little voice will always say: “Who the hell is this?”
At the Trieste Photo Days Salvatore Matarazzo will try to make people reflect on the subject with flash and camera, and if he usually chooses his subjects to photograph for this time, it will be the public itself who chooses to be portrayed by him and, above all, to look for his own image told from the point of view.
